No Place Like Home
While we were there, I had my mother-in-law show me her Crazy quilt. It belonged to her mother, and according to the embroidery, it was finished in 1884. It is full of velvets and laces and ribbons and adorned with lots of lovely handwork. Some of the bits are beginning to wear away, but considering its age, I'd say it's still in pretty good shape.
While we were there, she also got a family tree in the mail from a relative who has done quite a bit of genealogy. I dabble with the family tree from time to time, so I'll have to compare his tree with mine and add in the missing relatives.
